David Jason blasts X Factor: 'Frankie Cocozza will be dead by 22'

Sir David Jason has predicted that X Factor star Frankie Cocozza will be dead by the age of 22. 

The  actor accused the contestants on TV talent shows of being too desperate for fame and went on to describe Cocozza, who was axed from The X Factor for allegedly bragging about using cocaine, as a "plonker" who would "burn up" amid his new-found notoriety.

Do people just do reality tv for the fame and notoriety? Is this actually clever life strategy because as the song goes, Only fools and horses work?

Zahara got some new hair <3

She's always given the impression of cute little girl with low maintenance wash and go hair.

But now it seems Zahara Jolie Pitt is ready to shed that image with a stylish new 'do. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's six-year-old daughter showed off trendy new hair plait extensions this weekend as the family set out to see a show in Las Vegas.

Even though she was with her superstar parents, all eyes shifted to Zahara's new 'do as the family arrived to take in Sin City's latest musical extravaganza.

Jessie J: I want to gain more weight

Most New Year resolutions include dieting. Not for Jessie J. The British singer says her goal for 2012 is to gain more weight.

Jessie J says she's "been working hard this year" and that "it's important to know when you need to gain weight, or when you need to lose weight and be healthy."

The 23-year-old is known for her slim figure and skin tight outfits.

She released her debut CD "Who We Are" earlier this year. It's double platinum in the United Kingdom, where she has four Top 10 hits, including the No. 1 tune "Price Tag." That song has reached the Top 40 in America.

The singer also plans to shave her head for charity.

Says Jessie J: "I want to make a difference in the world."

Rooney Mara explains SVU-diss quote; ONTD probably continues hatin'

Last week, the Internet was abuzz over a quote Rooney Mara gave to Allure for their new cover story. The New York Post's Page Six picked up a sliver of an excerpt from the magazine, in which Mara appeared to say that her first-ever professional role, as a formerly obese girl who taunts and bullies overweight children, was "stupid" and "awful," amongst other unflattering things. The story took off (including getting picked up here at HuffPost) in part because the world knows so little about the 26-year-old actress at this point.

The incident proved instructive about the more inconvenient sides of celebrity.

Man, I was LOLing so hard at everyone getting mad at her, since people here have been hating on SVU for YEARS and saying it should be cancelled (which is probably true, even though the early seasons were flawless). And it's the POST. SMH, people.

Nerds and Male Privilege

Nerds and Male Privilege I want to tell you a story.

A few years ago, I was dating a girl who was decidedly not nerd curious. She tolerated my geeky interests with a certain bemused air but definitely didn't participate in ‘em… not even setting foot inside a comic store on new comic day. She'd wait outside until I was done… which could be a while, since I was friends with several of the staff.

She came in the store exactly once, after I'd explained that no, it's a pretty friendly place… well lit, spacious, organized and with helpful – and clearly identified – staff members who were willing to bend over backwards to make sure their customers were satisfied.

She was in there for less than 4 minutes before one mouth-breathing troglodyte began alternately staring at her boobs – evidently hoping that x-ray vision could develop spontaneously – and berating her for daring to comment on the skimpy nature of the costumes – in this case, Lady Death and Witchblade. She fled the premises, never to return.

Kathy Griffin: 51 & Proud

First, you have to know: Los Angeles has never been easy for me.

I moved here in the late 1970s from Oak Park, Ill., where -- well, you might be shocked to learn this -- I didn't achieve fame and fortune overnight. It was only after a decade or so of banging guys I met at the Carl's Jr. on Santa Monica and La Brea (none of whom, by the way, turned out to be casting directors) that I finally got my network debut on an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

By then I was about 30, and while hardly old, I wasn't a 20-year-old ingenue. And don't think that wasn't made clear to me in auditions across town. There was always someone younger, with perkier tits. Every fucking time.

The fact that Hollywood is tougher on older women is hardly new. In all my years in this town, I've never heard a director or producer say, "You know, she's great, except she's not quite old enough." There's always a tendency to go with someone younger, because they're perceived to be sexier and, of course, sex sells. Look at the covers of weekly magazines: Their stock-in-trade is chronicling the love lives and mug shots of twentysomething starlets. That is the world we live in, that is what generates buzz. That's what generates money.

Professor claims NYU fired him after he gave James Franco a 'D'

James Franco’s tired James Dean act got an NYU professor booted from the school last year — after the teacher dared to give the overhyped Hollywood hunk a “D” for blowing off class, a lawsuit charges.

José Angel Santana said he slapped the “127 Hours’’ star with the bad grade because he missed 12 of his 14 “Directing the Actor II” classes while pursuing a master’s in fine arts.

Santana said he then suffered all kinds of drama — first from Franco, who publicly ridiculed him, then from his department, which axed him over the “D.”

“The school has bent over backwards to create a Franco-friendly environment, that’s for sure,” Santana, 58, told The Post. “The university has done everything in its power to curry favor with James Franco.”

Santana, who is suing NYU in Manhattan Supreme Court for his job back, asserts that Franco, whose career took off after a 2001 portrayal of James Dean, acted like a rebel without a clue in his other courses, too, blowing off just as many classes. But the star’s other professors at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts still gave him good grades, Santana said.

Q&A: Gary Oldman on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and How Life Gets Easier as an Elder Statesman

If you took a straw poll of Hollywood actors and asked what living actor they admire most, Gary Oldman might well top the list. Ever since he portrayed punk rocker Sid Vicious in 1986’sSid and Nancy, Oldman has conquered role after role with aplomb—from Beethoven to Dracula, from Commissioner Gordon to Sirius Black, and all without getting nominated for an Oscar. That may change in 2012, thanks to his masterful work as cerebral super-spy George Smiley inTinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which opens tomorrow. Not only is Smiley, John le Carré’s ennui-stricken Cold Warrior, another iconic character, but he’s also already been famously portrayed by the renowned English actor Alec Guinness.

10 Funniest Gif Trends of 2011

The Internet has always had a love-hate relationship with animated GIFs. Long a telltale sign of an archaic website (especially when multiple artifacts wind up on a single page), the bandwith-eating multi-image animations were a cause of annoyance rather then entertainment.

Well, the GIF’s reputation is changing. Since the meteoric rise of Tumblr, which boasts “GIF” as the website’s top tag, the animated images are snapping back into the mainstream and are becoming a popular form of shareable media. Users are flocking to GIFs to articulate their personal feelings, relive moments from their favorite movies and tv shows, and indulge in the rapidly expanding arena of shared references.

And where there’s digital media, there’s comedy. GIFs are becoming a popular way to spread humorous split-second scenes from real footage or popular media, whether it be a pratfall, reaction shot, or even a line of dialogue. We’ve rounded up the funniest trending themes and motifs of the GIF world and curated them into a shortlist of 10 major contenders. We also delved a little deeper to find the history behind the GIFs, and where you can find more of their meme-tastic entertainment.

From Mind Control to Superstardom: The Meaning of Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night”

The music video “Marry the Night” tells the story of Lady Gaga’s rise to fame in the entertainment industry. Oddly enough, her “journey” begins with her describing the symptoms of a trauma-based mind control victim. Is there a deeper meaning to this video? We’ll look at the symbolism of “Marry the Night” and its underlying occult meaning.

Lady Gaga generated a great buzz among her fans when she announced that the video to Marry the Night would reveal a part of her past. Did her fans expect the video to begin with a traumatized Gaga inside a psychiatric ward with a bunch of lobotomized girls? Probably not. But from that strange starting point, the video proceeds to depict Gaga’s rise to super-stardom. How does all of that tie in together? To most, this doesn’t really make any sense. However, to those who understand the relation between trauma-based mind control and the entertainment industry, it makes perfect sense. While many of her previous videos referred to mind control in subtle and symbolic ways (see previous articles on Vigilant Citizen), Marry the Night takes it a step further, pretty much spelling it out. At the very start of the video, Gaga’s monologue defines in unequivocal terms the plight of a mind control victim. Despite her hardships, she says, she is determined to make it in the music business and is ready to do whatever it takes to reach her goal. She therefore “marries the night”, an expression that has a profound meaning.

The video is Lady Gaga’s directorial debut and, according it is basically a “big thank you” to Interscope Records – the record label that signed her. This is definitely true but the video also says thanks to those behind her record label: the “Night” that she married. Let’s look at the video’s most important scenes.

Madonna's Latest Oscar Snub

"Masterpiece" does not qualify for Oscar contention.

The Academy announced the 39 qualifying songs in this year's race with a handful of big names in the running - but one Golden Globes nominee, Madonna, conspicuously missing.

"Masterpiece," a Madonna song from "W.E." that received a Globe nomination last week, did not qualify for Oscar contention because of its placement a minute-and-a-half deep in the final credits. AMPAS rules require an end-credits song to be "the first music cue" in those credits to qualify.

'Misfits': Series 3 Episode 8 review

It's finale time! But is this the end for Misfits?

By the Nazi-killing, zombie-bashing high standards of Series 3 it's a rather low-key finale, and against the previous 7 episodes feels just a bit underwhelming.

A criminally underused Mark Heap is the medium who brings back ghosts that have unfinished business with our misfits. So high is the group's kill-rate it's disappointing that only three ghosts from the past return: probation workers Tony and Sally, and brainwashing cult-member Rachel (bit weird seeing her in this again after Downton Abbey).

Long-term fans will love the nostalgia of seeing Series 1 characters, while fans who came onboard more recently may find things feel a bit shallow. Did we really care that much about Tony and Sally that we'd want to see them again?

Trailer Preview for Ridley Scott’s PROMETHEUS

A trailer for the trailer for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi pic Prometheus is now online. It’s a 30 second “trailer preview” for the actual trailer that will be released online this Thursday. It’s pretty similar to the footage we saw at Comic-Con, as it has some behind-the-scenes footage (as well as a tiny bit of actual footage) interspersed with Scott talking about the film on set (though the grainy stylistic flourish is a tad confusing). It ups the horror aspect of the flick, something I was extremely happy with when we saw the Comic-Con footage. As it has connections to Scott’s Alien, it really does look like he’s drawing from the horror tone of that pic instead of simply making a sci-fi actioner. While Scott recently stated that the xenomorph will “absolutely not” appear in Prometheus, I’m excited to see what sort of being will pop up in its place.


Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard break up

Actress Jessica Lange and her longtime partner, playwright and actor Sam Shepard, ended their relationship almost two years ago, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

The couple, who have been together since 1982, have two children, Hannah and Samuel, together.

"They both are pursuing independent lives," says a source.

Lange, 62, who stars as Constance in FX's hit series, American Horror Story, was just nominated for a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award. She will be seen next in The Vow, costarring Rachel McAdams, in February.

A rep for Lange confirms the split – but has no additional comment. Shepard's rep could not be reached.

Legentina Returns to the Super Bowl as "The Voice" gets 1min Ad!

...from 'Friday Night Lights' director.

You probably guessed NBC would promote The Voice during its Super Bowl coverage, but not like this: The network is going big with a special The Voice Super Bowl ad from Friday Night Lights and Battleship director Peter Berg.

The 60-second ad is titled “Vokal Kombat” and plays off an element of The Voice that’s unique to the NBC singing competition: The judges’ swivel chairs that turn to face a contestant during the auditions when a judge hears a performer they believe is deserving of a spot on the show. Of course, if more than one judge turns around to face the stage, they must compete against each other as they try to win over the contestant to their team. The ad takes this rivalry to new heights, with Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Cee Lo Green employing martial arts, weapons, and dirty tricks to win the battle royale.

The ad will make its debut during NBC’s presentation of the big game on Feb. 5, which is followed by the second season premiere of The Voice. A 30-second commercial in the Super Bowl costs an advertiser around $3 million, but NBC can air The Voice spot as a promo.

Britney Spears’s ‘Princess’ Engagement Ring: All the Details! + 50 Cent Happy for Britney!

Britney Spears may be a pop-star diva to the rest of the world, but to beau Jason Trawick, “she’s his everyday princess,” says celebrity jeweler Neil Lane, who designed Spears’s dazzling engagement ring to befit Trawick’s vision of the singer’s down-home regality.

“Jason is a romantic and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same — she is his princess!”

With that theme in mind, Lane tells PEOPLE he designed from scratch a tiara-motif sparkler with a round, perfect white diamond in a handmade platinum setting that “looks like a mini crown,” the celebrated jeweler says. He also added 90 small round diamonds around the eternity band. “Jason didn’t want an over-the-top ring with a giant stone,” he adds.

Over the last month, Lane and Trawick clocked phone and email minutes as they collaborated while Trawick was traveling with Spears on her global tour. “Texts came from all over the world, from Abu Dhabi, Mexico and I don’t know where else!” says Lane.

But when Trawick stopped into Lane’s Los Angeles store to pick up the ring — less than one week before the proposal! — they both knew the hard work and scheming had paid off. “Oh my god, he loved it,” Lane shares, adding that he could tell Trawick had pre-proposal jitters. “The guy was so excited and nervous. At the end of the day, even with all the fame, he’s still a normal guy who was about to propose to the woman he loves.”

That said, Lane believes this couple is in it for the long haul. “He’s deeply in love with her. Britney is his princess and he is her knight in shining armor,” he says. “Jason’s protective of her. He adores her. Every good fairytale needs a princess, and now Britney has a ring fit for a princess!”

Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel Say 'I'm Hating It'

In November, after an undercover video aired depicting mistreatment of egg-laying hens at Sparboe Farms, a McDonald's supplier, McDonald's swiftly dropped the company. Target soon followed suit, and Sparboe Farms put out a video explaining that what the investigation discovered was "completely at odds with our animal welfare policies."

Though McDonald's took fast action to remove Sparboe as a supplier, to some celebrities, this move was not enough. In a letter to Jim Skinner, the CEO of McDonald's, ten celebrities including Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel and Alicia Silverstone encourage McDonald's to buy 100% cage-free eggs, which the company already does in Europe.

The letter reads in part:
While McDonald's has already established a 100% cage-free purchasing policy in Europe, your U.S. restaurants continue to support egg factory farms that confine hens for most of their lives in cages so small they can’t even spread their wings.nearly anything that comes naturally to them. Common sense tells us that animals with legs and wings should be given the basic freedom to move.

Sadly, there is not a single federal law to protect hens from cruelty from the time they hatch to the time they are killed. While McDonald's brags about the "billions and billions served," millions of hens exploited for your restaurants are being grossly underserved. In fact, these animals are being abused in ways that would land your egg suppliers in jail, if dogs or cats were the victims.

The full list of the letter's signers are: Ryan Gosling, Emily Deschanel, Alicia Silverstone, Kristen Bauer, Bryan Adams, Zooey Deschanel, Wendie Malick, Maria Menounos, Steve-O, and Ed Begley Jr. To read the full letter, check out

Kelly Osbourne: "I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Kelly Osbourne suffered another injury over the weekend, she announced via Twitter -- breaking her left hand after falling out of bed!

"I must be the most accident prone/stupid person it the world," the E! Fashion Police star, 27, wrote Sunday. "I fell out my bed while sleeping last night and fractured my hand in 3 places!"

"The worst part," she pointed out, "Is i permanently look like I'm giving everyone the thumbs up because of the way it's casted! I look like such a twat!"

And it sounds like Osbourne could use some painkillers, too. She complained early Monday: "I'm in sooooooo much pain I can't sleep it's bloody excruciating!"

Last month, Osbourne was treated at a Miami hospital after suffering a concussion. "Long story short, I cracked my head open then kept passing out," she explained to fans.

The US XF panelist is tipping Cher for big things in 2012...

The X Factor USA judge L.A Reid has backed the Blighty's very own Cher Lloyd for huge success in America next year.

Reid, who has helped the likes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Mariah Carey to become huge worldwide stars, revealed on an US XF pre-show: "Listen, you need to know that [Cher Lloyd] will be a massive star in America. Watch out. Cher Lloyd, watch it."

In response to L.A's comments, the 2010 XF finalist said: "It's a bit crazy because I don't expect anyone to know who I am because I live in the UK."

Lloyd continued: "I'm from The X Factor and I came fourth. It's crazy and it gives me a lot of hope."

Cher, who is planning to unleash her debut album Sticks + Stones in North America next year, also claimed she's currently unsure whether her debut UK single Swagger Jagger will be her first release Stateside.

The 18-year old added: "I'm not sure yet, but I'm still recording. I'm starting to record tomorrow."

Earlier this month, Lloyd was forced to deny rumours that she was engaged to boyfriend Craig Monk, after she was spotted sporting a sparkler on her engagement ring finger.

Kate Beckinsale: I would never ask Mark Wahlberg to wear tights

Kate Beckinsale and her daughter Lily were seen out in Los Angeles on Sunday (December 19). The duo made a stop at Calypso St. Barth at the Brentwood Country Mart.

Beckinsale (38) will star in three movies in 2012. Contraband will be released on January 13 while Underworld: Awakening, the fourth installment in the vampire franchise, will hit cinemas one week later. Total Recall, a big-budget remake co-starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel, is currently scheduled for release on August 3.

Mark Wahlberg recently spoke about working with the actress in the upcoming crime thriller Contraband: "She responded to [the material] right away and was hungry to do something different. It reminds me of Amy Adams in The Fighter ... having someone who you are used to seeing in a certain way. Kate, while she has done a lot of action stuff, she hasn't done the gritty urban thing all that much". 

Beckinsale has described Wahlberg as "very manly. In England there's a grand tradition of actors wearing tights and makeup. I wouldn't want to ask him to wear tights."

Interview with Megadeth's Dave Mustaine leaves one thinking 'the fuck did I just read?'

I keep trying. But I cannot. My brain. Cannot. Wut is this. Kudos to the interviewer though, I can only imagine their face during the transgender bit. (I do disagree with their claim that none of Dave's behavior is insane, refusing to play with Rotting Christ is insane because they are TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME.)


James Franco Continues to Expand his Résumé ♔

You can add ad man to James Franco’s rapidly expanding résumé.

Seven For All Mankind and its advertising agency, Lipman, have tapped the actor to direct and photograph the jeans brand’s upcoming multimedia spring campaign. This is the first time Franco will helm an advertising shoot, with the print results set to break in March magazines and filmed segments to go up online around the same time.

For me, it’s an excuse to be creative. They’re giving me a lot of freedom,” said Franco on the phone from Detroit, where he is filming the title role of Disney’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” a big-budget prequel to “The Wizard of Oz.” “It’s about having the opportunity to be creative in a new way and they are going to provide all the toys and the cast and everything else.”

Franco, 33, is slated to shoot the campaign on Dec. 11 in Los Angeles and a second date in January. The as-yet-unannounced cast will include celebrities and models.

from the brief video, i can see the artistic direction he is taking and i am quite intrigued.

In Defense of Americanised Remakes

David Fincher's new movie, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, already has a giant target on its back. No matter how "fresh" it is on Rotten Tomatoes, some people will say it's "not as good as the original" — that it's just another dumbed-down Americanized remake. Valid or not, this critique will inevitably lead to the suggestion that Hollywood stop remaking properties from abroad. "If the story's already been told perfectly, why change it for American audiences?" they'll ask. But those people will be wrong. Americanized remakes have tremendous value. Even the shitty ones.

idgaf I'm crazy excited for this movie (and I just started reading The Girl Who Played With Fire, so I'm getting all hyped up). And I agree with this author for the most part - remakes shed some light on the foreign movie market. However, it still doesn't change the fact that people would rather watch an action shitfest than a film that was actually well done, all because it stars people they don't recognise and it's in a language they don't understand.

PS sorry about the wonky formatting - lj is fucking with me today.



Guy Who Pirated Wolverine Is Now Guy in Prison

Gilberto Sanchez, the 49-year-old man who leaked 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine more than a month before the film's release, was sentenced today to a year in prison. According to United States Attorney André Birotte Jr., "The federal prison sentence handed down in this case sends a strong message of deterrence to would-be Internet pirates."

Sanchez, a Bronx resident, was formerly convicted of a similar offense, having uploaded pirated films for half a decade. Oh, and guess where he first posted Wolverine? MegaUpload, the file-sharing site curiously/infectiously endorsed by a slew of celebs in a recent music video.
